Because we love her and miss her; because she 
helped us all and was an integral part of our 
school life; because she worked tirelessly to make 
the library useful and attractive; because of her 
love of what was beautiful and true; because of 
her devotion to her family and friends; because 
of her complete unselfishness and all the rare 
tilings she was, we, the Class of 1942, as a small 
token of our affection and gratitude for her 
contribution to our lives, dedicate our yearbook 
to 

MARGARET SNOW 









May 6, 1901— January 5, 1942 



"The old order changeth, yielding place to new, 
and God fulfills Himself in many ways lest 
one good custom should corrupt the world." 

Just twenty-five years ago our country entered the 
last war — the "war to end wars." The reconstruction 
period was borne cheerfully because people com- 
placently thought there would be peace and democ- 
racy forever. Now in 1942 we are plunged into a war 
involving the whole world, in which not only our 
ideals and those privileges which we take to be the 
fundamentals of democracv are at stake, but our 
very survival as well. All of this spells change — in our 
mode of life, in our habits of thinking, in our expec- 
tations for the future. All of this requires courage, 
imagination, and steadfastness of purpose. With the 
thought in mind of the "changes which are sure to 
come" to us all, but which, nevertheless, "we do not 
fear to see" because we know that without change 
there can be no growth, the Yearbook Board of 
1942 gives its volume of The Circle into your hands.

PEAKING of changes . . . ! We came to 



Abbot with long skirts and short 



hair, and lived on the 



floor! Many are the 






fourth 



wild tales told of 



that first year! We were organized into a class, but 



spent most of our time getting 
used to Abbot and standing in 
awe of the Seniors. Time passed. 



Our numbers thinned and new 




girls came to fill in the ranks. We moved down in 
Draper, and some of the lucky ones went into Abbey.

transfer of the Senior Parlor. 



would never come. And as for being Seniors our- 




selves—that just seemed impos- 
sible! But finally September, 
nineteen forty- one, arrived and 
how important we felt! Humbly 



we set the pace for our younger 
sisters, whom we now present, and 
seriously to the end we took our 
jobs of being Seniors. 




OF NINETEEN FORTY-TWO 



PREP CLASS 



They came to Abbot in a year when all 
was in the process of changing, not only in 
the school, but also in the world at large. 
However, thev weren't aware that thev were 
the beginning of a new and different day at 
Abbot. They got off to a good start and soon 
"belonged" as much as did the Seniors them- 
selves. 

Leaders of the Preps: Presidents — Alary 
Jane Kurth and Madge Twomey; Vice- 
Presidents — Jean Russell and Sally Leavitt; 
Secretaries — Josephine Bernardin and Janet 
Redman; Treasurers — Gretchen Fuller and 
Nancy Ferns. 

OFFICERS: 

Leavitt, Fuller, Redman, Hodges, Ferns, Twomey (Kurth, Russell)

Oh, no you don't! 
Not a double exposure!

JUNIORS AND JUNIOR MIDS 




They are the "in-betweens" of Abbot, but 
they hold their own! We sympathize with 
them for we were in their position once 
ourselves. They are just getting used to 
Abbot ways and yet they are not old enough 
to be an "old timer." Never mind! Their 
turn will come soon! 

Junior and Junior Mid Leaders : Presidents 
—Frances MacDonald and Molly Hubbard; 
Vice Presidents — Priscilla Stevens and Mar- 
garet Travis; Secretaries — Catherine Feeney 
and Elizabeth Colson; Treasurers — Charlotte 
Iceland and Betty Bertucio.

How enviable is their state! They are on 
the brink of the best of all their Abbot years. 
Well do we know what they are feeling: that 
next year holds all the richest and dearest 
that Abbot has to offer. We pass on to them 
all that was ours and wish them success and 
happiness. 

Senior Mid Officers: Presidents — Margaret 
Hill and Ann Bacon; Vice Presidents—

retaries — Marjorie Lehmann and Mary Alice

With a step that is steady and strong 

Forty-two comes marching along, 

True to the colors we bear, 

The yellow and white so fair; 

In bond of fellowship true, 

That the days and the years cannot 

sever, 
United in purpose we stand, 
We'll sing it once, 
We'll sing it twice, 
Our class forever. 



Nineteen hundred and forty-two! 
This is the year in which we pulled 
together the strings of all our years at 
Abbot. We are prepared now for col- 
lege, or for some specialized study. 
We feel that we have almost reached 
that exalted state of being ''grown 
up." We face with confidence the next 
step. We take our leave with regret 
and yet with a subtle satisfaction, as 
we join the large band of loyal Abbot 
alumnae.

RING SONG 



TREE SONG 



For us the time has come to take our leave, 
And for the work we've done our rings we re- 
ceive — 
These are the symbols of our hopes and fears 
That mark the end of all our Abbot years. 

For us the mem'ry of many happy days, 
Returning after we have gone on our ways, 
Will make us stronger, keep the purpose clear 
Which we discovered while we studied here. 

For us the counsel of those who helped us 

learn 
What were our standards, which the way to 

turn — 
Untouched by change, whate'er the future 

brings, 
Lies in the circle of our Senior rings. 

— Frances Flint 



Not just a tree we leave behind 
A Spirit leave we too, 
An upright thought of Abbot born, 
We hand it on to you. 

The tree we plant for you to keep. 
In memory guard it well, 
Our loyalty is rooted here, 
The love we cannot tell. 

This sapling may in after years 
Have grown like those we know, 
Thoughtfully planted by other girls 
So many years ago. 

While through the years this tree will live 
May none its coolness shun, 
We'll carry on the heritage 
In Abbot years begun.

BBOT 1941-42! What will 




we remember about it? First 

of all, beloved faculty faces 

were missing and new ones 

took their places. School opened to the hammering 

of carpenters and the smell of 
paint. The new dining room was 
used for the first time, the new 
library was still very much under 
construction and part of the Class 
of '42 returned for two months 



to the fourth floor where it 
was born! Because of the war, 
the outlook and emphasis of 
the school was somewhat 



shifted. Societies were pushed into the back-

ground to make way for defense 
courses. Fire drills gave way to air 
raid drills and blackouts. Sugar 
was scarce. The soup course was 
omitted. We conserved paper, cut 



down on parties, and bought defense stamps. "Hoard- 
ing'' and "priorities'' became 
familiar words. Other words 



and phrases hitherto unheard 
of crept into our vocabula- 
ries. There was an air of alert- 



ness and of eagerness to help which 
was evident throughout the year. 
The fundamental traditions of the 
school were not altered, but Abbot 
swung into a wartime tempo. 





OF NINETEEN FORTY-TWO 



THE 




Marguerite Capen Hearsey, Principal 



Parties at sunset, with Tinker on field day, poetry classes, 
amusing anecdotes, and gadgets for black-outs and air-raids 
will ever be reminders of the leader of Abbot, Miss Hearsey. 
These things, her friendly council, and gay smile have 
endeared her to the whole school. 
[36] 



FACULTY AT ABBOT 




Getting acquainted with the Griffins' new mascot 



In the faculty, too, this has been 
a year of change, for with the return 
of familiar faces has come the wel- 
coming of many new ones. 

The functions of the front offices 
and their occupants play an important 
part in an Abbotite's life. This she 
discovers early in the fall when she 
joins the Wednesday after lunch 
queue for a week-end permission 
from Miss Rath, signs out or sends a 
telegram through Miss Goodman, or 
when, in going to buy a ticket from 
Miss Baynes, she is told by Miss 
Robinson that she has overdrawn her 
account and she has no money to 
finance her trip. 

Then comes the prom with per- 
haps an application entered in the 
blind date department and partici- 
pation in the pre-prom fashion par- 
ade, both under the auspices of Miss 
Humes. 

To Miss Coolidge our student 
betakes herself for all requests from 
pins and a table cloth for a play to 
peppermint stick ice cream. Canteen 



classes, vitamins, and good meals 
are her specialties, so Miss Rath 
takes care to preserve dainty appe-

tites with "foodless parties"! Palates 
are satisfied bv Ellerv Queen and the 
Hit Parade instead! 

Novels, plays, themes, and vocabu- 
lary constitute a busy year for the 
English department. In studying lit- 
erature of today essays even on slang 
and Hollywood are discussed, at 
which time Miss Sweeney admits her 
dilemma over the headlines 'Louis 
Kayoes Hunter", and spends a week 
end reading her first movie magazine 
from cover to cover ! 

Miss Wilkinson inspires her classes 
with a passion for words, and few 
Mrs. Malaprops are to be found in 
their ranks. 

Besides her English classes Miss 
Baker is the guiding light of the 
course in home nursing. Tea and the 
symphony constitute very pleasant 
Sunday afternoons in her room. 

Miss Tuttle has many fascinating 
stories of India at her finger-tips 
which she tells with gusto. 

Thursdays and Fridays find Miss 
Sullivan's enviable gray coupe parked 
outside McKeen. This is conclusive 
evidence that vocabulary, reading 
for speed, or achievement tests are 
in store.

This year Miss Smith was very 
much missed by the students in her 
history classes. In her absence Miss 
Roth did a wonderful job in carrying 
on discussions on governmental devel- 
opment, and the storing up of dates!

Time: Second Period 
Place: The Circle 



Were you ever inspired to the point 
of wishing to be a polyglot? The 
Abbotite who was has found her op- 
portunity — dictionaries in almost any 
modern language and a staff of teach- 
ers who rearrange the words and 
idioms into grammatically correct 
sentences with amazing ease. In fact, 
Miss McKee so enthuses her class, 
that when Valentine's Day arrived 
they burst forth in lace, red hearts, 
and Latin! Although she and Miss 
Robinson spend most of the morning 
conducting Caesar's Gallic Wars or 
carrying on Virgil and Cicero's ora- 
tions, second period is their recess and 
they never fail in their jaunt around 
the circle. 

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner bring 
strange echoes from the various cor- 
ners of the dining room. Comments 
on the weather and emphatic "si's" 
or "oui's" are the most audible parts 
of the conversation, although Miss 
Baynes' table lays claim to interesting 
discussions of politics and the news! 
Miss Rechnitzer's guests are even so 
fortunate as to have a menu each 
evening. Senorita's Spanish table may 
not have a menu, but the games which 
they play teach them everything on 
and around the table. Poor Mile. 



Trouve is being introduced to Ameri- 
can food, and is still trying to acquire 
a taste for that delicacy, the hotdog! 
Word problems, algebraic equa- 
tions, and hexagons are the complex

issues presented to students by Miss 
Hancock, Mrs. Fischer, Miss Tucker, 
and Mrs. Poland. Under their guid- 
ance the answers turn up as they 
should and A is proved equal to B. 
Miss Hancock also conducts excur- 
sions to the observatory for star gaz- 
ing. With her interest in stars, her 
superstition concerning rabbits seems 
quite incompatible! 

Besides algebra, Miss Tucker teach- 
es a class of would be chemists, to 
whose antics in the laboratory the 
other occupants of the building can 
testify by the smell! Miss Tucker is 
also renowned for her stride and her 
jokes posted on the first floor bulletin 
board. 

Mrs. Poland's class in biology chill 
the blood of the rest of the school with 
their discussion of dissecting. On 
Friday night, however, nature is set 
aside and Mrs. Poland conducts the 
dissecting of an engine in motor 
mechanics. 

For the future career girl Miss 
Dooley's classes fill the periods with 
dictations, speed tests, and numbers. 

For those who would be housewives, 
Miss Dodge's homemaking class is 




designed. There uneven seams are 
contended with and overcome.

ed to enjoy "the Arts" at Abbot. Per-

haps she can not aspire to the choir, 
but there is always Fidelio or Choral 
under Mr. Howe's supervision, and 
she certainly doesn't have to be an 
artist to enjoy the art studio. If an 
inhabitant of the third floor misses her 
bed animals or hears blasts of music 
from above, she will, upon applying 
to Miss Hatch and her art class, find 
the cause of her grievances on the 
fourth floor. It is, however, in Miss 
Gay's classes that the history of the 
art practiced in the studio is studied, 
slight though the resemblance may be ! 

Under the direction of Miss Friskin 
and Mr. Howe the music studio is 
kept active with piano lessons and 
practicing, while Miss Tingley coaches 
her singers over in the John-Esther 
Gallery. It is at the Sunday concerts 
that the fruits of these efforts are 
enjoyed. 

The girls who think "the play's 
the thing" see Mrs. Gray, the director 
of Abbot's dramatics. Those not born 
actresses join the company to work 
on properties. Although the dress 
rehearsal is invariably reported "aw- 
ful," the performance never fails to 
surpass all expectations. 

The call of the sports world is an- 
swered every afternoon as the Gar- 



goyles and Griffins, coached by Miss 
Carpenter and Miss Elvedt, get in 
training for the final tests of skill on 
field day. Pinnies, hockey sticks, ten-

nis rackets, and balls are the material 
evidence of the activities. On the side, 
Miss Elvedt is the conductor of the 
not quite so popular foot class and the 
author of the current "posture marks 
due Saturday" notice on the hall 
board. 

Fire and air raid drills and explana- 
tions are Miss Carpenter's specialty. 
Out of a maze of stairways, entrances, 
and exits she has evolved a system 
which works without a hitch. Ski 
room, posture classes, a merry twinkle, 
and a brown tweed coat are also 
associated with her name. 

Have you a cold? Do you need 
some cough drops or a box of Kleenex? 
Thus Miss Duff and Mrs. Coon are 
kept busy by the ceaseless comings 
and goings at the infirmary. 

It is with regret that students have 
had to say good-bye to Mr. Gibbons 
as he leaves for his new parish in the 
west. The interesting discussion in 
his Bible classes will be missed.

In Memoriam 

MRS. HANNAH RICHMOND DUNCAN 

October 23, 1886-August 6, 1941 

She was our friend and helped us all in 
many ways. To her we went, not only when 
we were sick but also when we needed advice 
and help. She made the infirmary a haven 
where we found peace and comfort. Even 
though she had serious worries of her own, 
she was always cheerful and brisk, ready 
with a kind word or a helping hand. We 
shall always remember Mrs. Duncan as a 
bright and shining light in our life at Abbot.

FALL TERM 




"But they went in easily!" 

"Where is Abbey House?" a timid 
voice asked in the lobby of Draper. 
Immediately a welcoming horde of 
A.C.A. and Student Government rep- 



resentatives rushed to the rescue, and 
one more frightened newcomer was 
made to feel at home on her first day 
at Abbot. 

The Abbot Christian Association 
is indeed an integral part of the 
school life, for through it the desire 
to be of help to others, which is in 
the heart of every girl here, is ex- 
pressed and fulfilled. This year es- 
pecially the organization, led by 
Bah Hill, gave its never failing aid 
and encouragement, from throwing 
bean bags with the Andover children 
at the Christmas Party to dressing 
dolls and packing toys for Hindman.

The first Saturday back at school 
was brightened considerably by the 
traditional Old Girl-New Girl Picnic 
at Pomp's, when group singing, girls 
falling into the pond, and baseball, 
with Miss Hearsey pitching, were the 
highlights of the day. That night 
"bluejeans" escorted "skirts" to the 
A.C.A. party for new girls. The 
school was divided into groups, and 
each group asked to depict, with the 
aid of newspapers and pins, a nation- 
ally known figure. Admiral Byrd, 
complete with snowshoes and hood,

was easily the winner. A floor show by 
old-girl talent, doughnuts, cider and 
"Good Night Ladies" completed the 
evening. 



[46] 



After this happy day of getting 
acquainted, new and old settled down 
to a more routine life, interspersed 
with helping Miss Woolley with tulip 
bulbs in the new garden, Senior 
breakfasts at Kirkshire, and Saturday 
luncheon rides, canoe trips and nose- 
bag walks. Then on one of the last 
sizzling days before fall set in the 
Seniors were off for Ipswich and 
their long anticipated picnic. They 
walked barefooted on the sand, saw 
the bus drivers go wading, watched 
the full moon rise over the water, ate 
divine food around the fire, and 
as the embers died away they sang

masterfully headed this year by Mary 
Bertucio, who presided at the first 
meeting (when the new girls became 
Gargoyles or Griffins) with such grace 
and poise that everyone knew it 
would be an extra special year for 
athletics — and so it was! 

Two important members of the 
A. A. A. were Betsey Fowler and Mari- 
lyn Menschik, who made fine captains 
of the Griffins and Gargoyles respec- 
tively, and led their teams with out- 
standing sportsmanship throughout 
the year. Lynn's team started out

way ahead, but no one can be certain 
of anything until the year is over 
when the shield will tell the whole 
story.

Fall Field Day came on November 
15 before anyone realized that it was 
time to welcome in the winter sports 
season. In traditional style the Gar- 
goyles, with Lister in the lead, and 
the Griffins with their goat (which no 
one got, in spite of everything), 
marched to the middle of the circle, 
serenaded the faculty gathered on 
Draper Hall steps, and continued to 
the athletic fields. 

Very important on Field Day, as 
well as on all other school occasions 
during the year, were the Abbot song 
leaders: Jeanne Bowersox for the 
school, Bunny Shaw for the Gar- 



goyles, and Rhody Wind for the 
Griffins. The fact that they had good 
voices as well as leading ability made 
them unusually well fitted for their

[49] 



jobs. For years to come Jeanne's 
name will probably be blessed at Ab- 
bot because with the help of her com- 
mittee she revised and brought up-to- 
date the Abbot Song Book. 

The Gargoyles came out ahead in 
the final hockey games. It was a hard 
struggle from the very beginning, and 
the contest was so close throughout 
the season that rules and even safety 
were disregarded for the first few 
weeks. Poor Miss Elvedt had to start 
her first year at Abbot by trying to 
recall to the Abbot Amazons impor- 
tant points which they had apparently 
forgotten during the summer. She

was frankly appalled at first, but she 
succeeded in bringing order out of 
chaos, and the season eventually 
produced some fine games. Members 
of the varsity were: Anne Corkran, 
Betsey Fowler, Bette Gorsuch, Hon- 
ora Haynes, Peggy Howard, Louise 
Leslie, Betsv Lvtle, Marilvn Men-

schik, Barbara Ohnick, Pat Petten-

The tennis singles match was not 
so quickly or so conclusively decided 
as was the hockey. The school was 
tense and excited as it watched the 
incomparable game between Bert

and Molly, saw Bert take the first 
set and lose the second 12 to 10, and 
finally as it heard that the entire 
match would have to be postponed 
until another day because there was 
no time for the third set on Field Day. 




and march!" 

Two days later Molly, the Gargoyle, 
won in a beautifully played match. 
This was a terrific upset, for the 
Griffins had won the tennis singles 
every year for several years. The 
Gargoyles were also successful in the 
tennis doubles. 

Another sport which is rapidly be- 
coming more and more popular is 




Straight shooter 



archery, which was one of the con- 
tests on Field Day. A number of 
Abbot girls won national archery 
awards during the fall term, among 
them Marilyn Barlow and Diantha 
Hamilton. Marilyn, together with 
Esther Smith, brought additional 
glory to the Gargoyles by winning the 
archery. Edna Nutton, Gargoyle, won 
the badminton. The Griffins won only 
the croquet, ping-pong, and deck ten- 
nis. Elinor Cahill, Ruth Goodall and 
Josephine Bernardin were the winners 
respectively. 

Needless to say, the Gargoyles went 
wild over their successes, and the 



51

Griffins, in spite of their initial set- 
backs, quietly remembered that the 
year was only one-third over, and 
that much could happen in the six 
months still remaining. Members of 
the athletic council were hostesses at 
the tea which followed the Field Day 
events, and in the midst of many 
reciprocal serenades and team songs 
awards were presented by Miss Hear- 
say after dinner in Davis Hall. 

And while the fall program was pro- 
gressing, work on the new wing and 
the Library was quietly (?) and slow- 
ly, but surely proceeding. Before the 
underclassmen knew what was hap- 



pening twenty-four Seniors had de- 
scended from the fourth floor and 
were comfortably settled in their 
spacious and attractive new rooms, 
with pink tiled bathrooms included! 
And from then on there were two 
stairways to the dining-room instead 
of one, and the faculty began finding 
it hard to get to meals on time ! 

The Library was the last of the new 
wing to be completed. The second 
week in December, under Miss Snow's 
careful direction, the books were 
moved to their spacious new home 
with a loss to the students of only two 
periods of study time.

"Gammer Gurtons Needle" 



The Abbot Dramatic Society pro- 
duced two novel plays — the famous 
"Gammer Gurton's Needle," starring 
Virginia Gourley as Gammer, and 
"They're None of them Perfect," 
starring the whole society. No one 
will ever forget Jeanne standing on 
one leg, swaying dangerously, and 
talking on and on. The fist fight be- 
tween Gammer and her neighbor, 
played by Sally Zimmermann, was 
likewise memorable. The A.D.S. chap- 
el "Jepthah's Daughter," which was 
based on an Old Testament story, 
was one of the most moving produc- 
tions which Mrs. Gray has ever 



directed, despite the fact that it was 
played without costume. Special men- 
tion should be made of the perform- 



Jeanie intent on evil!

ance of Betty Jean England, who 
played the title role. 

Other chapel programs were pre- 
sented by C our ant, Aeolian and Philo- 
matheia. Courant discussed "The Psy- 
chological Effect of Radio in Modern 
Warfare" which sounded alarming 
but which turned out to be highly 
illuminating. Philomatheia presented 
'The Place of Science in Defense," 
from the point of view of conserva- 
tion, nutrition, search, invention, etc. 
which proved to be full of valuable 
information. Aeolian gave a Christ- 
mas program of various Yuletide 
customs in different countries, and of

stories were appealing, and the poetry 
— why Abbot is running over with 
Keatses and Shelleys ! 

L.B.A., Odeon, and Q.E.D. dis- 
continued their meetings after Christ- 



mas in order to take an active part in 
the defense courses. Society members 
thereafter joined the rest of the 
school on Friday evenings when they 
lay stretched out on the floor being 
tied into knots by eager first aiders,

or under "Lily Belle," the 1930 
model Buick, where they showed up 
as very unskilled mechanics! All of 
this certainly represented a change 
from the quiet room with someone 
reading a play by Shaw, for instance, 
typical of former society meetings. 
Hardest of all, parties became things 
of the past. 

And speaking of defense, five regu- 
lar courses were offered at Abbot in 
response to a general wish on the part 
of the students to prepare them- 
selves for greater usefulness in the 
national emergency. These were First 
Aid, Home Nursing, Motor Mechan- 



ics, Canteen, and a current events 
group — "The World Today." They 
turned out to be real work, and it

gave the graduates a marvelous feel- 
ing of achievement when their names 
were read out in chapel as having 



successfully completed the course. 
Broken arms, flat tires, or feeding 
five hundred people at a moment's 
notice no longer seemed unsolvable 
problems. 

Suddenly, just as the fall program 
was settling nicely into a regular 
routine, everyone began dressing 
dolls or practicing songs for Christ- 
mas. As always, the choir did a great 
deal to make the exciting days preced- 
ing Christmas vacation a favorite 
time of the Abbot year. Everyone 
will long remember how inspiringly 
they sang the Magnificat at the 
Christmas Service, and all went home 
on December 19 in holiday mood.

WINTER TERM 

A dismal three weeks set in when 
the school returned on January 6th. 
completely exhausted as usual. But 




Smiling in spite of bad luck 



mid-years were soon over and the 
great day arrived when the Seniors 
took off for Intervale. The first inno- 
vation was the mad dash for lip- 
sticks, with both Miss Hearsev and 
Miss Carpenter joining in! The second 
was headquarters at Kearsarge — but 
near enough to Intervale to make no 
difference at all. The days were a 
wonderful jumble of skiing, skating 
to music, eating far beyond normal 
capacities, trying hard to snatch 
some sleep, and discovering new 

friend-. "Aunty" Pam's unending 
special-, telegrams and phone calls 
served as the only link with the out- 
side world. A broken ankle was the

only casualty, but poor Gretch 
was confined to crutches for weeks 
after a very sad group of Seniors 
returned for another semester of 
work. 

The Senior Mids' annual presenta- 
tion of plays in honor of the Seniors 
brought a welcome escape from toil. 
Bunny Shaw as "Pompey dear," and 
Betsy Bennett as the sweet Lady 
Violetta were outstanding in "The 
Knave of Hearts." The other plays, 
"Cottage for Sale" and "The Maker 
of Dreams" completed an excellent 
program which the Seniors and every- 
one else thoroughly enjoyed. 

One definite innovation in this year 



of change was the prom, lengthened 
into a whole week end instead of end- 
ing most sadly at twelve o'clock Sat- 
urday night as before, and coming on 
March 8th instead of late in April in 
order to fit in with the new speed-up 
schedules of many boys' colleges — 
an important factor! There seemed 
to be a great scarcity of dates this 
year, but by the time the day arrived, 
the boys arrived too. Tea and dancing 
in the new recreation room were en- 
joyed in the afternoon, and after a 
quick supper of hamburgers in the 
basement of Draper — strictly a hen 
party — the formal dance was held in 

Such a serious receiving line!

the beautiful new dining room. Es- 
corts at church and at Sunday dinner 
caused quite a commotion, and then, 
alas, at two o'clock curfew sounded 
and many dejected girls found them- 
selves either hopelessly in love or 



hopelessly out of it, but deserted in 
either case. 

On the Saturday before spring 
vacation the Seniors presented "The 
Barretts" —a complete triumph. Bette 
Gorsuch as Elizabeth not only played 
her part; she lived it. Jeanne Bower- 
sox as Browning portrayed the daring 
unconventionality of that character 
splendidly. The supporting cast was 
equally fine. 

Every year Abbot sends delegates 
to the Northfield Conference and 
their reports stimulate interest among 
the students for the following year. 
Their "Good Night" meetings and 
their occasional vesper services keep

the group very close throughout the 
year. 

Contrary to all expectations, bas- 
ketball, not skiing, was the sport of 
the winter season, especially among 
the Griffins who began to take their 
turn at success. Members of varsity 
basketball were: Mary Bertucio, Hon- 
ora Haynes, Marjorie Hamilton, Mol- 
ly Hubbard, Edith Ninomiya and 
Ruth Snider. The other major sport 
during the winter term was modern 
dance and, languid as it sounds, 
there was nothing in the physical 
education program more strenuous ! 

At the end of each season of sport 
one of the most exciting announce- 



ments is the winners of the two hun- 
dred and fifty points required for 
membership in the "A" Society.

All winter prospective skiers looked 
in vain for snow. As soon as they 
gave up hope and packed their skis 
away for the summer the snows 
came! Yes, spring arrived robed in 
white, but before long the golf, tennis, 
riding and baseball majors were well 
launched on their spring sports pro- 
gram. 

There was a strange new interest 
in Fidelio this year! Could it have 
been caused by the presentation of 
"H.M.S. Pinafore" with the masterful 
aid of Phillips Academy? At any rate
